Jandré Dippenaar to plead today

The start of the murder trial against Jandré Dippenaar, who is accused of causing a horrific motor vehicle accident in December 2014 claiming the lives of six people, will commence today.
The case was postponed yesterday in the Regional Court in Swakopmund.
The reason for yet another postponement in the high profile case was due to state prosecutor Hezekiel Iipinge requesting to make final consultations with his witnesses on Monday. “I have received the plea explanation by the defence and after perusing the document wishes to consult the witnesses today,” said Iipinge. The application was granted by Magistrate Gaynor Poulton, who remanded the case until this Tuesday morning.
Dippenaar, who is out on warning, is facing six charges of murder, a charge of driving without a valid licence and a charge of fraud, after he allegedly pretended to the Roads Authority that his driving license was lost on 17 December 2014 and thereby induced the RA to issue him with a duplicate without having a valid driver’s licence.
Dippenaar is represented by lawyer Petrie Theron and advocate Louis Botes.
